Butler County residents, motorists, and emergency crews were busy dealing with the effects of high winds around the area Wednesday afternoon.
Calls came into the Butler County 911 Center for a variety of issues including a tree that fell on a vehicle on Dinnerbell Road.
Elsewhere, portions of roads needed to be temporarily closed as a result of downed power lines and trees on wires lead to utility pole fires. A portion of East Portersville Road was closed between Pleasant Valley Road in Muddy Creek Township and Route 528 Pittsburgh Street in Prospect Borough due to a downed tree.
At one point over 50 residents of Connoquenessing Township were without electricity as a result of a West Penn Power outage.
